Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Proverbs 145. The proverb today is what goes
around comes around. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. In English, you can
sometimes hear this proverb reversed to have the same exact meaning. So you could
either hear it as what goes around comes around
but you could also hear what comes around goes around and both of them are
supposed to mean exactly the same thing. Sometimes I do hear both. All right.
Let's continue. If someone says what goes around comes
around the speaker is suggesting that one's
action may eventually come back to have consequences on one's life. So on his or
her life, whether directly or indirectly. It is often used as a warning that if
you do bad things, bad things will come back to harm you. But it could be used in
a positive way to encourage people to do good things. So
good things will return to them. Let's continue.
Some say the earliest citing in the US comes from the book called "Donald
Writes No More" in which it is mentioned four times or four times in that book. All right.
Let's continue. However this idea has been around in other countries for
millennia. For thousands of years. Okay. The Bible quote and proverb because
it's both a quote and it turned into a proverb. "As you sow, you shall reap" has
basically the same idea. You know , sowing the land with crops and how you do it
you know, that will depend upon you know, how the crops grow. Really how your life
turns out. So how you behave will turn that and will, will, will have a great
influence on how your life turns out. It's basically the same idea.
In addition, the principles behind karma in Buddhism
and Hinduism expresses the same idea as well. Not only in this life, but perhaps
for a future life through reincarnation. So if you're bad in this life, maybe
you'll suffer more in the next life or vice versa. If you're good maybe I'll
have a better life in the next life. All right. And we just have one example here.
I wouldn't do that. This is just bad karma. So you know, I wouldn't do this
even if you can get away with it. I wouldn't do it it's bad karma. It's bad
luck. Remember what goes around comes around. You do this bad thing and you
know maybe we'll come back to haunt you or hurt you or harm you in some way
later or possibly in another life as well. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it was
clear. I hope it was food for thought. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
